We were learning about the arrival of the Celts in Ireland all those years ago and the many changes they brought to Ireland. We have made a short presentation on them so that you can learn a little about them too!
We have been making some Celtic Knot Designs for art this week. Below is a short video to show you how we made them.
We did an experiment in class. We were trying to make cloth waterproof and luckily our experiment was a success. For this experiment we used:
1. 2 pieces of equal sized cloth
2. 2 sheets of newspaper
3. Some vaseline
4. A jug of water
5. A teaspoon.
1. We laid out our two pieces of cloth. We applied vaseline to one cloth and left the other dry.
2. We carefully placed our two cloths on newspaper.
3. We applied a small teaspoon of water on each cloth.
4. We waited for a few seconds.
5. When we lifted the cloths, the one without the vaseline had allowed the water to soak through to the newspaper and it was wet.
6. The cloth covered in vaseline kept the newspaper dry.
Result and Conclusion: The vaseline made the cloth water proof. The oil in the vaseline would not mix with the water so it would not let it through.
Vaseline was good at keeping it waterproof but it might be very slippy and greasy if we used it all the time!!
While the snow lies on the ground outside and we are having all this cold and windy weather we decided to explore a place where they have this climate all the time. We located Antarctica on the globe and researched it on the internet and in some of our library books. We worked in groups on some different topics and put our information together in a presentation. We hope you enjoy reading about Antarctica and hopefully you will learn a little from us too!!
